Google reinvents itself very often and the latest buzz is google chat... this thing is integrated with your gmail account... you dont need to download google talk to chat with your friends anymore, atleast for the text based chat.. they have integrated the smtp based mail with chat...isn that intresting check this out bloggers check out google's analytics it is another awesome free service. Yahoo! i reckon is the leader in messenger service... its just awesome... let it be the photo sharing or the stealth settings... yahoo rocks! i guess google will catch up very soon. Then there is this VOIP software called voipStunt this thing claims that you can make free calls to a lot of places (the list is in the home page), i actually tried calling UK, US and Aus... it did work but after some 5-6 calls it is asking me to buy some credits to make free calls... i dont understand the logic, but yes it definately allowed me to make free calls to home phones. Intrested in remote desktop? then there is this (logmein), i dunno if it would beat RealVNC or TightVNC, logmein doesnt ask for the IPaddress to log in to your PC, the client once installed in your desktop takes care of that work. All you have to do is log into the site with your details and your desktop is all yours.... isn it simple.

being a fan of google, i am always amazed at their innovations :-)...

remotedesktop -- u login ur details to a website??... how much privacy do we get, i mean does the website have access to our computer directly??.. the win XP remote desktop i think might be better coz its without the middle man (the website!)... but ofcourse microsoft might be doing something in the background :-)

The launch of Gmail Drive from Google!!
Things you need to have:

1) gmail account

2) Gmail Drive software

Process steps:

1) Download Gmail Drive from following link (takes seconds to download) ::

http://www.softpedia.com/
progDownload/
GMail-Drive-shell-extension-Download-15944.html

2) Install the software.

3) After installing, a drive named gmail drive will be created in My Computer (just like C: D:).

4) Double click on this drive, login to gmail acct. You will get a space of 2.61 GB (awesome).

4) Whatever content you copy to this drive will be sent to your mail acct to which you have logged in.

The copy is pretty fast. So now u can upload huge files to ur Gmail accounts easily..
HATS OFF GOOGLE

@karthik - yes! site will have a direct access to your PC... thats a draw back... the only advantage of this fella is you dont have to always know the ipaddress to which you are connecting...
@vijayan - someone told me about this few days, but i never got to try this out... hey joined mahindra???
